Hi Everyone,

So it's been 20 years since Angel first came on the air this fall. It's going to be celebrated at a convention in New York City in early October 2019.

Also Entertainment Weekly made a cast special like they did with Buffy for the anniversary 2 years ago. So if anyone wants to watch the new Angel reunion you can find it here:


I hope you'll enjoy this walk down memory lane. :)

Take care,
Best wishes:
Karin.

The show has been on my mind since the reunion was released. Boreanaz reminiscing about shooting the Pilot on the streets of LA with the late Glenn Quinn got me thinking about how good the show looked, that feel of the first season - supernatural noir...with the three lost, lonely souls - Angel, Cordy & Doyle, later Wes - LA in the background. It may not necessarily be the best season but I think it's still my favourite.

The first season of Angel had many great stand alone episodes. It still bugs me though how Buffy never heard from Cordy about "the forgotten day" when Angel was human for an episode since they made sure to plant that Angel told Doyle and Doyle told Cordy. So the potential for Buffy to find out was there but nothing ever came out of it. :rolleyes:

Doyle was wonderful on the show. It is sad how both Glenn Quinn and Andy Hallert died way too young. :(

But yeah Angel was a great show. In my last rewatch I saw it as it's own thing rather than an extension of Buffy and surprise, surprise I enjoyed it more that way!
Angel and Darla had such an interesting story. I loved that they brought her back for season two and three. :)

I also don't like the way they killed off Cordy or Fred. It seems unnecessary. The show only had two females in the opening credits and both died at the end? :censer:

The angel reunion was much better than the buffy reunion. The buffy reunion seemed tense. The angel reunion they all loved they were hanging out again.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I just thought you might have attended them since I noticed it said on your profile that you're from New Jersey and the Angel reunion was in NYC so it's not that far. :)

I wish I had been able to attend but alas I’m sure the cost to attend was steep and I didn’t even know about it until after the fact.

I'm sure you are right. I went to a Halloween convention with David Boreanaz and James Marsters in London way back in 2004 and it did cost a lot for just one evening and buying autographs.

I think most of those conventions or discussions or meet ups are expensive. The companies that organize it have to make money somehow as well as pay the celebrities who appear.

That is very true. I think the least expensive event I've been to is when the Dallas cast was at the Mirande Country Music Festival in France. The entrance to that festival was very reasonable and the costs for autographs wasn't too expensive either. But I think that is an exception to the rule.

Thanks. I love the Buffyverse. I actually became a "fan" very late, with season 5 of Buffy, which still is my favorite.
I was an Angel fan since the pilot and I hated that the WB cancelled it when it was still profitable with decent ratings.

I’ve only ever been to a music event and honestly don’t remember the cost. It was convention and the later afterwards a concert.

i started Buffy Ethernet season 3 and 4. Also angel I watched from the start. Both shows are unique but I love both of them and the characters. Also all of the mythos in the “buffyverse” and “angelverse “
I never understood why they canceled Angel. It was an odd thing.

I started watching Buffy and Angel around the same time as you did back in 1999.

I remember I was so upset when Angel was cancelled. I was a part of the "Saving Angel Campaign" but unfortunately we weren't able to save the show. :(
